US Air Force Tweets Photo of Soldier Saluting LGBTQ Flag

Pride month began just over a week ago, and already this year’s proven to be even more gay than last year...if you can believe it. Most recently, our military posted a graphic of a soldier saluting against not the American Flag but instead, the "Pride" flag. 

The image was shared to the official United States Air Force Twitter account on Wednesday under a caption stating, “June is Pride Month! The Department of the Air Force proudly recognizes and celebrates generations of LGBTQI+ service members and their contributions to our Air Force & Space Force.”

The tweet was accompanied by a graphic of a "Pride" rainbow - complete with pink and blue stripes representing transgenders - behind the Air Force logo, along with a saluting soldier and the words, “Celebrate PRIDE MONTH.”

The original tweet received almost 5 million views and was also shared by the official Air Force Global Strike Command page which received nearly 50,000 views of its own. Public comments on the tweet have since been shut down.

It really is comical that this administration thinks saluting "gay pride" will make our nation look good. If I was a foreign threat and saw a post like this to represent a country’s military, I would be 0% worried about attacking them. 

Others felt similarly on Twitter. The Libs of TikTok account wrote, “What an embarrassment.”

Another user posted, “As a retired Air Force officer I am humiliated by the state of the service. No credible American and no actual Airmen would salute anything but the American flag. Celebrating a military member saluting a pride flag is not just embarrassing it is traitorous. The current senior leadership are no more than a group of Aldrich Ames clones with a few Harvey Milks/Ed Bucks mixed in. Everyone involved in putting this messaging out should have their clearance revoked & face Article 15 procedures. You have all failed in your responsibility and your oath to the US Constitution. Ridiculous and embarrassing.”

ForAmerica President David Bozell added, “You might as well kneel while you’re at it.”

This isn’t the first time, and likely won't be the last, the Department of Defense has shown how willing it is to cave to the woke mob. 

A 2021 U.S. Army recruitment video that looked like it was made by Disney featured a little girl with two moms who found her “calling” to join the U.S. Army. 

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said it best on FNC's The Faulkner Focus: “The job of the military is to kill the bad guys, and it is to -- it is to strike fear in the enemies of America,” not “to sit around a circle emoting and passing daisies back and forth.”

He’s right. Our military needs to focus on what it was designed to do: protect our country, not push a gay agenda that does nothing but set us up for failure. If this is what we’re prioritizing, we’re doomed.
